Stellate Ganglion Block Injections
At Envision Orthopaedics & Spine , we specialize in ganglion block injections as well as complete spine, back and neck care. Our state-of-the-art spine center includes board-certified orthopedic surgeons, spine surgeons, and interventional spine physicians, as well as a complete ancillary staff of licensed physical therapists, massage therapists, and acupuncturists.
We take a warm, caring, and collaborative approach to patient care with the goal of helping patients achieve long-term pain relief and improved quality of life.
A stellate ganglion block injection involves the injection of a local anesthetic around the stellate group of nerves in the neck. The goal of the treatment is to reduce pain and increase the blood supply to the affected area.
Our spine physicians have successfully performed this procedure on many patients with the aid of a top-of-the-line C-Arm GE 9900 Elite Fluoroscopy with a laser guidance system. Many patients report immediate pain relief after a stellate ganglion block procedure.
Candidates for a Stellate Ganglion Block Procedure
Patients with chronic pain affecting one side of the head, neck, upper arm, and upper part of the chest may be good candidates for a stellate ganglion block procedure. The only way to find out for sure is to schedule an appointment. Our physicians will complete a full evaluation to determine the source of your pain and whether or not a stellate ganglion block procedure is right for you.
If you are a candidate, the procedure can be performed in the comfort of our fully equipped, in-house surgical center. After you have recovered from the procedure, you can return to our facility to complete a physical therapy program tailored to meet your specific needs.
